Start a Business

The first critical step in launching your business is choosing how you will operate. A small business attorney will analyze your business to help you determine whether it is appropriate to create an entity and, if so, which entity type best positions you for success. It might also be wise to register multiple entities depending on the nature of your business. An experienced small business lawyer can work with you to evaluate several potential options, including:

  • Sole Proprietorship
  • Partnership
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC)
    • Single-Member LLC vs. Multi-Member LLC
    • Member-Managed LLC vs. Manager-Managed LLC
  • Professional Service Limited Liability Company (PLLC)
  • S Corporation (S Corp.)
  • C Corporation (C Corp. / Inc.)
  • Professional Service Corporation (PC)
  • Nonprofit Corporation (501(c)(3))
  • Limited Partnership (LP)
  • Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)

Additionally, a business law attorney can help you with:

Grow Your Business

Growing your business requires forward-thinking and proper planning. Establishing strong business policies and procedures early on can help prevent many legal issues later.

Effectively managing your business requires carefully maintaining internal and external relationships and complying with governing statutes and documents. A corporate attorney from the Evan Ficaj Law Firm can help you with the following:

  • Serving as General Corporate Counsel
